Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Sadly they redid the wishlist functionality – there is no way anymore to email the wishlist.

Next steps, I suppose, would be to create a way to log in and scrape the list that way…

Another awful ripoff (16):
  • Fight Club: Members Only

I began watching Bollywood movies because of an awful ripoff, that one called The Fog and presumably released the same time as the Hollywood remake of the old John Carpenter “classic”. That movie wasn’t about fog at all.

This one, though, is about a “fight club” that four friends create, to give people a safe place to iron out their differences (i.e. beat each other up). The similarities to the David Fincher/Brad Pitt/Ed Norton film from 1999 carry over to there being a number of rules for the fight club, and that’s about it. Fincher’s film is a brilliant and violent indictment of consumerism and modern malaise and blah blah blah whereas Vikram’s version is about some guys who want to kill some other guys, after framing them or something, and they’re all interested in running night clubs.

And there’s dancing. They dance, and fight, and fight and fight and fight…

Do not watch this movie.

get this 'spider solitaire' monkey off my back
no longer addicted

I’ve kicked the habit. I know I can play a game here or there without any trouble, because I can quit anytime.

get some MIDI cables and make music with my computer and synthesizer
in progress...

I’ve got the MIDI cables, at least.

learn the names of the security guards so I can greet them back by name
getting there...

I now know four of them, leaving me only one or two to go.

file my taxes before Valentine's Day
... well, more or less

I finished and submitted the federal forms on time, and I thought I was ahead of the game on Ohio… until I discovered that our yearly IRA contributions aren’t deductible.

I learned this last year, and in my excitement for another several thousand dollars’ write-off, forgot again.

So the Ohio numbers were wrong, and I need to file an amended return. I’m waiting for final confirmation from the IRS and then, once those two are covered, I’ll look over the city’s numbers.

So I’m in good shape, all told. I’m counting this one done, and certainly worth doing.

build my AllConsuming profile

I think that now that I’ve added several hundred bits of media I can consider this goal ‘done’, though it will never truly be.
